CS3STHLM Newsletter December 2020
When you read this Stockholm has passed the winter solstice (Mo 21 Dec 11.02 local time) and is finally going in the right direction! At least regarding daylight time, which with Sweden’s zero hours of visible sun should not be too hard to achieve. We are also near the holidays, which we would like to celebrate by giving you all a gift!

The keynote presentation from CS3STHLM 2020 has been uploaded to our YouTube channel.
